§ 50. Mr. BOTTOMLEY
asked the Prime Minister whether, in the event of Britain and America being called upon under the Treaty with France to take up arms in her defence, they would automatically cease to be members of the League of Nations, having regard to the increased armaments which would be necessary for them to raise?
§ Mr. BOTTOMLEY
Under this Treaty which has been approved it is conceivable that Britain and America may have to take up arms in defence of France, and that means raising armaments, and is not that contrary to the League of Nations Covenant?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
No, I think not; but my hon. Friend is quite as competent to advise as to what the Peace Treaty means as I am.
